Sy Scholfield quotes him on Twitter: "9/11/49 at 7:30 pm on WPIX's "First Show, possibly introduced by Freddie Bartholomew. I was born during this broadcast of the 1937 Grand National musical, shown under the re-release title BATTLING HOOFER. TV premiere, under its original title, 12/10/41 on WNBT, now WNBC" [1].

According to the TV guide in New York Times, 11 Sep. 1949, p. X8, the movie was telecast from 7:30pm to 9pm. A mid-telecast birth time of 8:15pm is speculative.
